Research Handbook on EU Consumer and Contract Law

Research Handbooks in European Law series

Edited by Christian Twigg-Flesner, School of Law, University of Warwick, UK

Research Handbook on EU Consumer and Contract Law takes stock of the evolution of this fascinating area of private law to date and identifies key themes for future development of the law and research agendas. The Handbook is divided into three parts: first, authors examine a range of cross-cutting issues relevant to both consumer and contract law. The second part discusses specific topics on EU Consumer Law, and the final part focuses on a number of important subjects which remain current for the development of EU Contract Law.

‘Professor Twigg-Flesner has assembled a talented and multinational team of scholars to work on this project and they have delivered a terrific book. It is comprehensive and ambitious, sensitive to the context in which the EU’s involvement in consumer and contract law has developed over time, and moreover, the book is not only a state-of-the-art description of the law, it is also reform-minded and forward-looking.’
– Stephen Weatherill, University of Oxford, UK

‘Researchers and scholars will appreciate that this insightful volume is sensitive to the context in which the EU’s involvement in Consumer and Contract Law has developed over time, and it provides the reader with a very comprehensive analysis in describing and discussing the state of the law from various perspectives and approaches. More importantly, the volume contains some ‘food for thought’ because it not only contains a state-of-the art description of the law, but it also looks ahead. So it fits perfectly into the series of research handbooks on European Law. This legal literary genre the Research Handbook is very significant for researchers given that it analyses the latest thinking, research and practice across the field of European Law. In particular, this ambitious volume focuses on those emerging areas that deserve special attention in the field.’
